Gourd Napkin Rings

Remember those small gourds that I grew here? I was quite annoyed with myself for failing to read the packet causing me to end up with gourds that were only 2 inches long. I wondered what I was going to do with them. As it turned out, I got more use out of them than I ever expected I would. They provided a nice contrast to a bowl of apples that I used in a table setting, and today I decided they would make a nice, homemade napkin ring, tied around some of my fall napkins.
If you can get your hands on any small gourds like this, I would encourage you to do so. They are nice in a centerpiece, attractive in a cup at a table setting, and, as you can see, make nice, reusable, napkin rings when affixed with a bit of coppery brown raffia.

Just a quick tip!
